Idril is a princess is the hidden High-Elf kingdom of Gondolin which existed in the Second Age. It's events rather belong in Silmarillion instead of the Hobbit - way before Bilbo was even born. Her roots are in the Noldor tribe, but she's also partly a Vanya. That counts her among Galadriel and her four brothers, one of the only High-Elves of Vanyar who ever came back in Middle-Earth.

Idril fell in love with Tuor, a mortal man and a runaway slave who did great favors for Gondolin. She's one of the ancestors of Elrond and Aragorn. OK, enough for explaining Middle-Earth lore and timeline so far.

Anyway... no, Itaril is not Idril, and Tolkien never wrote her. Some of the fans who have read Tolkien books don't actually accept the idea that a newly added character would get too much spotlight from the actual story, especially if some romance with Legolas is involved. They think it could be count as Mary-Sueism.

It was "confirmed" that Saoirse would be in the movie, because one of the official people in the Hobbit media made the rumour sound like it's real. But as quoted, Saoirse later said that nothing has been confirmed. TheOneRing.net doesn't count her as confirmed, either.

Ok...I finally re-read The Hobbit again. Whew...it has been a very long time since I read it. Hmmmm....wondering how they are going to make it last for 2 movies.

A "leetle" skeptical, but hoping things were work out. Hopefully they won't fabricate too much or deviate from the book. 

Don't know if anyone has seen the Hobbin in 5 on Youtube...but in case you are interested http://www.youtube.com/user/hobbitin5

Thanks for all the good information Lorie. 

So Culpie you've re-read The Hobbit again but now you're skeptical.  In LOTR PJ left things out so with this they have to add so we'll see.  But I'm hopeful it'll be as wonderful as LOTR was.

Hey there, Romeny! How's it going?  A tad bit skeptical...but like you hopeful it will be as awesome as LOTR. 

Good thing we have lots of time before it come out. I am going to re-read the appendices in LOTR and read the Silmarillion too. I started it a long time ago...but never finished it.

OK, so who remembers this guy?



He's "Figwit", and he was in Lotr. Though his appearance was mainly a cameo, he still managed to get a small fanbase with it. He's Bret McKenzie from Flight of the Conchords. He'll be playing Lindir in the Hobbit... who's actually a funny side character from Lotr.

He might be singing a funny song or two. He's good in that kind of stuff.

Also, the clothes designer for the Hobbit is not Ngila Dickson like she was in Lotr, but Ann Maskrey. She's trying to be faithful to Ngila's style of wardrobe, but all the same she's adding new fresh touches of her own.

The confirmation of Saoirse Ronan's role as Idril and Stuart Townsend's role as Bard was april fools.

Breaking news: Gollum is directing the Hobbit!

Well, not really, but Andy Serkis has been named as second unit director by PJ, besides his role of Gollum.

Orlando Bloom is not yet confirmed after all, but it very much looks like he would reprise his role as Legolas. He has already said he would be happy to do it, and he has read his part of the script sent by PJ.

What he reveals is that he wouldn't be in the Battle of the Five Armies as rumoured. He would be mainly appearing in the palace as "younger" version of Legolas... though even in both Hobbit and Lotr he's still nearly 3000 years old. Lol.

There is a possibility that Middle-Earth movie by Peter Jackson could once again become something technically groundbreaking.

The Hobbit movies will not only be shot as 3D from beginning to end, but they will also use 48 frames per second - twice as much as it is now on silver screen. 48 fps movement combined with 3D, and the result will look very life like, as PJ expressed it after testing the new footage.

Also, WETA workshop seems to have a new nickname now, "Wellywood".

And... *drum roll* Peter Jackson takes us on a tour in the sets. (10 min video)
